I had lunch with a friend during restaurant week and the menu options were delicious. The portion sizes were perfect. I had the buffalo chicken wrap, which is yummy. The octopus was delicious. The brussel and apple salad is Tavern's top salad and delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Officially my new favorite restaurant. Obsessed with their commitment to sustainability without sacrificing quality or experience. The menu is extensive and interesting with options for the basic burger eater as well as the self-proclaimed foodie. Cocktails were on point. Portions were perfect and prices are reasonable. Will definitely be back often!

I had the outstanding Hangover hamburger at Spears this afternoon. The burger was cooked just right and was juicy. It had Merz cheese, fried onions and an egg on top served on a brioche bun - this was an outstanding burger!

Amazing experience. The staff were so excited and friendly for the dog foam party event. They even remember that it was our dog’s birthday!
